EXERCISE

So my mom and I went to her neighborhood "club house" to run on the treadmills there today. I've been doing the Couch to 5K thing, and have done some fairly consistent running over the past few months now, but in the Biggest Loser book (which my mom has because it is her favorite show), there's a treadmill interval workout for increasing the pace. I was intrigued, so we gave it a go!

IT'S HARD. I did fifteen minutes of it, then I was like, "Okay, I'm just going to run ten minutes at my normal pace and call it a day." I did run for two minutes at 7 MPH though! BUT....BUT IT WAS HARD.

Blah blah blah. Feeling really good about myself, though. Back to counting calories, since that seemed to be working and also it helped me keep track of my planner, so I stayed better organized with day to day things anyway. I kind of want to get a planner with an entire page for each day, but I really like the one auracel got me, too. I just wish there were more space to write.

UM. THERE'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING MORE INTERESTING GOING ON THAN THE FACT THAT I RAN TODAY.

*thinks*

I got nothing.

OH! I don't know if I announced it on LJ, but I've officially got a job at Tom Thumb. My first day is tomorrow. I'm pretty excited because I'm sick of sitting on my butt in an office, I stopped enjoying my job at RAZ when they took me off the customer service phones, so I'm excited to get back to doing a job that puts you right there with the customers again. Plus, it's two bucks an hour more than I was expecting to make with a job like this. SO I'M PLEASED. Not a lot of hours yet, but, you know, that should get better when they see how friggen' awesome I am.

MAN THAT WAS STILL BORING.

In case you're curious, since I started counting calories and running (as well as continuing to hoop and and occasionally doing some other exercise-y things), I've dropped down to 170, which is a significant drop from when I was my heaviest (202). Although I think I was more around 190 when I "officially" started paying more attention to my health.

Do you like how this entry went one place, went another place, then looped back around to the first place? IT'S THE BEST.

So anyway, I've kind of been wanting to do a vlog on general health and well-being, from the perspective of someone who's lived a generally unhealthy life and is working on fixing things. Would anyone be interested in watching that? Don't know if I'm actually going to do it or not. Maybe I should try it for a month or so and see how it's going and if I'm motivated to keep it up.

OKAY I'M GOING TO STOP NOW BECAUSE MY MOM'S MAKING ME A FRUIT SMOOTHIE AND I WANT TO DRINK THE CRAP OUT OF IT.
